Penetrance Thus far, penetrance of actg2-related disorders appears to be complete, as no family members heterozygous for a known actg2 pathogenic variant have been noted to be completely symptom free. however, the clinical severity can range within a family, and mildly affected individuals may not be aware of the diagnosis. examples: (1) one individual (in a multi-generation finnish family) with an actg2 pathogenic variant reported episodic mild abdominal pain but no surgery and no signs of visceral myopathy at age 19 years [lehtonen et al 2012]; (2) one individual diagnosed with "spastic colon" and irritable bowel syndrome had not required surgery or intervention in middle age [wangler et al 2014]...

Summaries for Actg2-Related Disorders

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 ACTG2-related disorders are a subset of visceral myopathy (a condition where the intestine is unable to push food through but where there is not a real intestinal obstruction) with variable involvement of the bladder and intestine. Bladder involvement can range from neonatal megacystis (a bladder with increased size) and megaureter (ureter abnormally wide) at the more severe end, to recurrent urinary tract infections and bladder dysfunction at the milder end. It includes three different conditions, megacystis-microcolon-intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome (MMIHS), Prune belly sequence or syndrome and chronic intestinal pseudoobstruction (CIPO). It is caused by alterations (mutations) of the ACTG2 gene and is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.  Affected infants (with or without evidence of intestinal malrotation) often present with feeding intolerance and findings of non-mechanical bowel obstruction that persist after successful surgical correction of malrotation. Individuals who develop manifestations of CIPO in later childhood or adulthood oftenhave episodic waxing and waning of bowel motility. They may need frequent abdominal surgeries (perhaps related to  intestinal malrotation or adhesions causing mechanical obstruction) resulting in resection of dilated segments of bowel, often becoming dependent on total parenteral nutrition.
